Roy’s Late Third Period Goal Gives Admirals Win Over Maine

GAME STORY

The Admirals and Mariners met for the 10th time in the regular season on Friday night at Cross Insurance Arena. Norfolk scored first on a slapshot from Josh McDougall, his first professional goal. It was also the first time the Admirals scored the game’s first goal since February 18. Shortly after, Brian Bowen continued his hot streak to make it 2-0 going into the first intermission. After Maine added a goal of their own in the second period, Bowen capitalized off a turnover to score his second of the game and fifth shorthanded goal of the season for Norfolk. In the third period, six total goals were scored. Maine made it 3-2 then Eric Cooley, who played his first game back since returning from Chicago, made it 4-2 in the middle of the third period. The Mariners would score two goals to tie the game up at four. With Maine controlling momentum, Mathieu Roy changed the momentum by scoring his 11th goal on the season to make it 5-4. Bowen added an empty-net goal for the hat trick and the Admirals skated away with a thrilling 6-4 win. Bowen’s hat trick was his first of the season.
